Itinerary

UPDATE: Timetables have been updated due to flooding and damage on the Milford Road. There will be limited photo stops on the way to Milford Sound: Mirror Lakes and Eglinton Valley will be the only planned stops. If time allows we may make additional stops. Estimated time of arrival into Milford Sound will be 1pm and the duration of the cruises is unchanged.

Discover one of New Zealand's most beautiful places on a Queenstown to Milford Sound full day tour. Known for its spectacular scenery, Milford Sound is a day tour you do not want to miss. Situated in a magnificent alpine landscape in the World Heritage Fiordland National Park, Milford Sound is known around the world as the 'eighth natural wonder of the world'.

Start your day in Queenstown, taking in the magnificent mountain range known as The Remarkables as you depart the city. You'll stop for morning tea in the picturesque lakeside town of Te Anau, the gateway to the Fiordland National Park.

Continue your journey along the Milford Road, through scenes of natural beauty that have remained unchanged for many years. With the glass-roofed coach you'll be able to gaze up at the mountains. Be mesmerised by the Mirror Lakes, where on a clear day you will see a perfect reflection of the mountains on the water's surface. Quench your thirst at Monkey Creek, where you can drink pristine glacial water straight from the stream.

Travel through the stunning feat of engineering that is the 1.2km Homer Tunnel, carved out of solid rock through the mountains. Marvel at The Chasm, a series of uniquely shaped rocks and potholes formed by the Cleddau River rushing into a narrow abyss. Finally, descend through the Cleddau Valley into Milford Sound.

Board your Milford Sound cruise and view the stunning mountains, rugged cliffs covered in native rainforest, and powerful waterfalls that tumble hundreds of metres into the fiord. Keep a look out for seals, dolphins and penguins in the waters below. A picnic lunch will be served during your cruise.

After your Milford Sound cruise, board your coach for the relaxing return journey to Queenstown.
